• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Wow. I never thought about this. Can anyone comment if increasing the armhole is possible or is it more of the ladder?
I would imagine that you could increase the armhole by however much inlay is remaining in the sleevehead. It's probably not much though.

I get where you're coming from, but the majority of S&M's customers are not #menswear geeks. Didn't I read that S&M is not going to offer their Neapolitan cut in RTW suits (only MTO) because they didn't sell well? If they can't sell that to their mainstream customers, forget trying to sell gurkha trousers to them.
I think you mean peak lapel suits will be MTM only, not Neapolitan.

I don't need mainstream RTW gurkhas, but a pattern for MTM would be nice. Otherwise, I'll keep heading to Spain for mine.

Hate to break up a healthy Gurkha discussion, but does anyone have sizing advice on the chukkas?

Is there a current SF discount code? Or specific to trousers/shirts.

There is a new code for RTW and MTM shirts: shirts20

20% off shoes too.

What's the consensus long term review on their shoes?

My size RTW shirts virtually all gone. 1 blue fine twill left in my size. Whites, pinks, checks, stripes... all SO
Certainly can be frustrating, which is why I recently placed an order with a competitor MTM for some casual flannels.

Still, I am going to order a popover MTM right now and maybe my first ocbd.
